Child Safety and Protection
MAWA is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. The MAWA has zero tolerance for child abuse.
MAWA is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with a disability.
Every person involved in MAWA has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
MAWA’s priority is the safety and well-being of its employees, volunteers, guests, and the community.
COVID continues to receive significant media attention as the number of variants and confirmed cases increases in Australia and worldwide.
MAWA has implemented precautionary measures to provide employees, volunteers and guests with an environment that is safe, secure and one that continues to provide a positive experience during this time.
